Ratner haters and comic book purists should probably stay home - a fun superhero popcorn movie that delivers nearly two hours of solid entertainment
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Director Brett Ratner's slack, good-enough-for-government-work vibe is all-pervasive. These mutants deserved a finer farewell.

Are mutants going to savor their special unique natures or are they going to try to be like the "normal" population. It could be an intriguing idea, but the film does not develop the issue in any detail.

But the main problem with the film, one that keeps it from reaching the highest elevations of popcorn entertainment, is its lack of real emotional resonance.

The climax finds the president announcing all is well during a broadcast over Fox news -- a bit of corporate in-house promotion that apparently is not intended to be ironic.

Although the series is beginning to look too familiar, this one at least maintains its breakneck pace.

A noisy and active but ultimately mediocre experience that probably won't be the last of its kind.

What a comedown, after the weirdly beautiful things Singer and his technicians did in the first two movies.

The latest X-Men flick, packs all the punches...

A worthy successor to the first two films.

If you're really into exciting special effects, then this is the movie for you.

The movie is what it is --- escapist enjoyment, if only for a short while.

Le potentiel y était pour un film grandiose et tout ce que Fox nous a offert est un film d'action un peu plus réussi que la moyenne.

Brett Ratner delivers the action but the punch doesn't stand up to the previous two films.

Judging by this third and purportedly final installment, the X-gene has been tapped out.

Frankly, it's surprising that director Brett Ratner, best known for the Rush Hour movies... was the man at the helm. It turns out the skeptics were wrong.

In this season of one disappointing blockbuster after another this one, at this point of time, looks good in comparison.

It's gratifying to see the X-Men movies be about something rather than just trying to be mindless action thrill rides.

The weighty main themes of alienation, discrimination, responsibility and the sense of fear still resonate, it's cheap production values and lame directorial efforts by Ratner made it hard to connect with the film. Left me feeling cold and disheartened.
